  • Taking Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts Seriously

    At noon I arrived at Tiananmen Square and sat down to send forth righteous thoughts. Then I stood up, walked a few steps and took out a piece of paper from my bag. A plainclothes policeman immediately rushed over to me. I sent forth righteous thoughts to eliminate the demons behind him and pretended to ask him for directions. As a result, he just left. I continued to send forth righteous thoughts.
  • Do Not Try To Hide From Cultivation By Busying Ourselves With More Things

    The fact is, many practitioners are stressed out with the many things that they are already doing, and in some cases, the things they're already doing are not going as well as they should. It is also the case that veteran practitioners who have taken on many important responsibilities are being attacked with huge illness karma. Why is this the case if doing more things is supposed to be the answer?
  • Erecting One's Palm Does Not Equal Sending Forth Righteous Thoughts

    Whenever practitioners mention sending forth righteous thoughts, many of them think of eliminating evil using divine powers, yet they don't look inward when facing problems or issues. They consider erecting palms as a universal way of solving their problems. True righteous thoughts give Falun Dafa practitioners wisdom. Why can't they think of proper solutions when they encounter problems?
  • Get Rid of Attachments and Cultivate Diligently

    After reading Teacher's new article "The Closer to the End, the More Diligent You Should Be" (October 8th, 2005), I felt that all the words were meant for me. I felt ashamed for still having so many attachments after seven years of cultivation. Here I share my painful experiences in getting rid of attachments during the past month and hope that fellow practitioners can benefit from it.
  • Introducing Falun Gong at a University Meeting

    Currently, I am a senior at the university. At the beginning of this school year, during the freshman military training period, a junior from the Student Association invited me to represent the seniors in a joint meeting between the seniors, juniors and freshmen. I declined at first, thinking the event was being held for the younger students, and that I am now a senior. But I changed my mind after realising that I could use this opportunity to let more people learn the truth about Falun Dafa and the persecution and so I happily accepted the invitation.
  • My Health Is So Much Better - A 70 Year Old Shares Her Experiences

    I am over 70 years old, and I come from the Lianshan District in Huludao City, China. Since taking up the practice of Falun Dafa two years ago, my body has changed drastically. I am thankful to Master Li - the founder of Falun Dafa. I truly feel that Falun Dafa has saved me from the bitter sea of illness and enabled me to know the bliss of good health.
  • Walking Away from a Debilitating Phobia

    Yongru shared her aspirations: "I was so surprised and happy that my phobia disappeared without any medication. But what I'm most happy about is because of Falun Gong practice, I have understood lots of things and have gained solutions to problems that I couldn't find the answers to before. I think the reason I would recommend Falun Gong to you is not so much because Falun Gong cured my illness, but because Falun Gong can make your life even more beautiful!"
  • The Power of Falun Dafa Manifests in the Transformation of My Family Members' Health

    After four months of practise, my wife recovered from her arthritis. She used to have trouble sleeping at night because of pain but now she sleeps very soundly. Her gastritis is now under control as well. Her face glows with health as she tells everyone how amazing Falun Dafa is.
  • How Cultivating in Falun Dafa Transformed Myself and My Family for the Better

    I realised that it is the field of righteous energy and righteous thoughts of a Falun Dafa practitioner. This also awakened some of my attachments so I thought that I had cultivated well. That is when my dad started to swear again. I gave it a second thought and my father restrained himself. I told him several times that he is causing himself big damage when he swears. My father also said that Falun Dafa must be something splendid since it made me quit smoking and drinking, speak the truth and value my job in his office.
  • Some Experiences from the Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance Art Exhibition in Sweden

    The work of guiding the paintings was an unforgettable experience. I learnt to forget about myself and turn all my focus on the person to be saved. Sometimes both the visitor and I would both have tears in our eyes. It was about meeting another human being heart to heart, and to give the visitor the best gift he or she could ever receive.
  • "The Doctor Told Me To Simply Recite Nine Words"

    One day, I went to a private clinic. I explained my situation to the doctor, who was also over 50 years old. He told me I had to have an operation. I was confused and said, "I did not come here to have an operation." The doctor asked, "No operation?" I said, "Correct." He said, "Then you say these nine words. Chant them with a pure physical and mental state four times a day. A lot of people have been cured using this method. I will be waiting to hear the good news from you."
  • Collapse of Thousand-Mile Dyke Results from Just One Anthill

    I was reluctant to think or talk about them, and I only felt that I shouldn't behave so poorly. After reading Master's new article "The Closer to the End, the More Diligent You Should Be," I was touched by Master's great benevolence--He is watching over us and taking care of us all the time. I have been lax and I feel unworthy of Master's benevolent salvation. I mustered the courage, however, to write this article, in the hope to remind other practitioners not to repeat my mistakes.
  • How Ten-Year-Old Rourou Cultivates and Lets More People Find Out the Truth about Falun Gong

    Recently, when Rourou was practising the second set of exercises, holding the law wheel, she saw many people kneeling down in front of her. The people wore shabby clothes and looked very worried. They kept on begging her, "Save us! Save us!" Rourou asked them to get up but one old man among them said, "We are the sentient beings of your world. You must promise us to cultivate diligently. Only then will we get up and stop kneeling, because only when you manage to successfully accomplish cultivation can we be saved."
  • The Importance of Endurance in Cultivation

    In the old days there lived a philosopher named Sokrates. One day he said to his students: “Do you think you can each morning 300 times swing your hand like this? All the students simultaneously answered: “Of course. There could be nothing more simple as swinging the hand like this each morning.” In one month he asked them again: “Who swung their hand in the morning?” A few of them raised the hand. After one year he asked again: “Who swung their hand this morning?” One of them, Plato, raised his hand. He was later his best disciple.
  • "Don't Thank Me, Thank Our Merciful Teacher"

    The next month passed quickly. On August 28th, I was bringing the founder of the practise - Teacher Li Hongzhi's - exercise CD to them. On the way to their house I ran into one of their relatives. He said excitedly, "She finished reading through that Falun Dafa book, and now she's reading it again. She can speak and walk. Their son was admitted to a university in another province and today they went to the train station to see him off. Please wait for a while, they'll be back soon."
